Miami was thunder struck - Merkur Gaming at Juegos Miami

(Espelkamp/Coral Gables).- The 4th edition of Juegos Miami saw Merkur Gaming Americas create a sensation with the presentation of Rapid Thunder, the in-game Jackpot Bonus innovation that massively adds value to both operators and players alike.

As the first major manufacturer to commit to Juegos Miami at its inception in 2016, Merkur Gaming has continued to support the event through all its four editions to date. The display of Merkur’s sensational new product, Rapid Thunder, an in-game, high value Jackpot Bonus feature, caused a hugely positive and enthusiastic response from visitors. Indeed, it was no exaggeration to say that Juegos Miami was Thunder Struck by this new and exciting innovation.


Following the tradition of recent years Merkur Gaming effectively opened the important social element of Juegos Miami by sponsoring the first night’s reception where food, drink, music and networking were all on the agenda and with a large crowd in attendance.

Speaking at the close of the three day event Charles Hiten, CEO of Merkur Gaming Americas, said: “Juegos Miami was a significant initiative for gaming across Latin America, central America and the Caribbean. By creating a hybrid event that included conference and education sessions, breakout round table sessions, a trade show and a strong social component Juegos Miami brought together top level visitors from across the Americas to meet and discuss important topics from all sectors of the gaming industry. We were extremely gratified and encouraged by the positive reaction to our brand new product Rapid Thunder and also extremely proud to be able to present what I am certain will be a pivotal development for Merkur Gaming in such high caliber settings. Now we move quickly to present Rapid Thunder to the most important judges of all: the players. We are ready and just as important: Rapid Thunder is ready.”
